Kate Middleton steps out in public for the first time in over two months

The 'missing' Kate saga can finally be put to bed after the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for her first public engagement in over two months this week.

Speculation had been swirling that perhaps the 39-year-old was pregnant with baby number four, as she hadn't been seen in 66 days, with her last public outing back on July 11.

But the Duchess has put rumours to bed, stepping out to visit an air base in Brize Norton, near Oxford, England on Wednesday.

There she met with members of the RAF who helped thousands of UK civilians flee from Afghanistan.


The outing comes after it was reported she also attended her brother James Middleton's wedding in France at the weekend.

Last year, the longest gap between public appearances for the Duchess (including Zoom engagements) was 41 days.

Kate attended this engagement solo, wearing a simple white blouse, beige blazer and flared navy pants for.
